Even though we’ve been busy, Thursday we took a day off. We joined Dan and Louanne for a Can-Am ride up into the Dragoon Mountains. The weather was perfect–blue sky sunny and warm. We didn’t go far, only up to Soren Pass stopping at the abandoned mine along the way to eat our lunch. Social distancing at its finest.
Friday we stayed way too busy all day long! The guest house living room is now ready for guests–
Quilts don’t do well folded–they develop permanent creases where folded so I decided to just leave these hanging–they bring me joy!
Sunrise on Friday morning brought me joy too!
I have such a good husband–my vacuum cleaner had developed this awful noise. I had to wear earplugs when vacuuming and even then the noise was almost unbearable. The Cowboy decided to investigate–
It’s kaput! Blown bearing in the motor and a broken brush–new parts, $45. We paid only $40 for this vacuum at a garage sale and I have always disliked it because of its weight–heavy! It was a good vacuum and now it’s time to find something else. Do any of you have a vacuum you love?? I have a Panasonic canister vacuum in Montana that I really like but it’s not made any longer.
The Cowboy started building cabinets Friday–or at least he started cutting and planing the lumber. He worked hard all day long and was one dusty, sawdust covered, exhausted man when he came in for dinner. I kept us fed and I cleaned all day long. Plus I took care of the Emmi girl.
Saturday evening Dan and Louanne along with Janice and Linda joined us for yet another fabulous meal. We had such a good time eating, laughing and talking–friends are a necessity for me. Everyone approves of our new living/dining room in the main house. Janice always brings the most original hostess gifts–I told her in these times it might be a really appreciated gift!!
The new dining room rug–
Sunday we rested–at least I did–the Cowboy puttered as always. I joined Linda, Janice and Louanne in Linda’s backyard for drinks–even though it was only 54 degrees, there was no breeze and we were sitting in the sun–heavenly. And Linda feeds the birds–amazing activity and chatter–so fun to watch.
